    This paper will describe a project adopting a pedagogical approach aimed at implementing and evaluating a problem-based learning project in an immersive world. The project involved an iterative process of testing scenarios using student feedback to improve upon the scenarios. This paper will also present findings from the project that will argue that developing pedagogically driven scenarios may offer a new liquidity to learning, and that combining technology with pedagogy can present mutual benefits.
